Range DescriptionAmytornis woodwardi is endemic to the Northern Territory, Australia. It is found in north-western Arnhem Land, on and around the Arnhem Land sandstone massif, between Katherine and Maningrida. Woinarski (1992) estimated a total population of c.500010 000 individuals and Garnett et al. (2011) suggest that the population contains no more than 10,000 mature birds. The reporting rate from the best-known site at Gunlom has declined through the 2000s (Garnett et al. 2011). The small amount of available habitat is severely fragmented and degradation is likely to continue, resulting in a continuing decrease in the number of individuals.
